How Long Submissions Take to be Approved

By , Hainesport, NJ
It seems that when you submit something, it takes weeks, perhaps even months for it to be approved. Everything is always published on the website, is it not? Has anyone ever received a letter saying your article was not approved and will never will be? I don't think so. Why not just post everything up right away so we no longer have to wait and wait to see our work up online.

I realize that not all articles are approtiate and decent, but they're all posted. I'm also on inkpop .com and when I post a short story or poem there, it goes up right away unless I don't want it to.

Give the people who work on the site a break, they're probably trying as hard as they can!

I waited several weeks for each of my articles, and only two days ago was one of my articles posted, and I waited since September.

It depends on the category and how big the article is. It shouldn't usually take that long

As a newbie, this is the one thing that simply is TURNING ME OFF to TeenInk. I've never used profanity and never will, so why does it take months to get published??

Mabye because they have hundreds of papers to go through everyday. You might not hae profanity, but many others might. As a newbee, it is frustrating, I agree

Most adult literacy magazines(paper ones especially) will give you a time period in which you have to wait. There is little excuse, especially when you could put up a disclaimer like some pros do.
